In brief: Recall concern

Fda posted a warning concerning intranasal zinc .
.."while zicam also makes zinc-containing oral cold remedies, these are not subject to this warning because the development of anosmia appears to be related to the intranasal application of zinc." anosmia is the liss of smell. You should consult your physician regarding this warning.
